DESCRIPTION


Extend your wireless coverage to the outdoors with the high-power ENH710EXT Access Point, an 802.11a/b/g/n long-range Dual Band Wireless Ruggedized N600 Outdoor Access Point with speeds up to 300 Mbps on both its dual band (2.4 and 5 GHz) concurrent operation that functions as a stand-alone Access Point or as part of the EnGenius Electron Series Solution of mix-and-match business-class networking products to provide a seamless enterprise-class experience. Configurable in a number of operations modes, this versatile outdoor Access Point can be utilized for a wide variety of applications. 

Operating in both the 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency spectrums and supporting 802.11a/b/g/n standards, the ENH710EXT features wireless speeds up to 300 on both frequency bands and a Gigabit port for connecting to 802.3at-capable PoE Switches. As the ENH710EXT is designed to be mounted in high locations where power outlets may be scarce, it also supports PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) IEEE 802.3at for use with an 802.3at-capable PoE injector.

When several ENH710EXTs are deployed in a campus setting, the 5 GHz band can be configured as a backhaul connecting several ENH710EXT units back to a central ENH710EXT. Thus, while several 2.4 GHz wireless cells are created to provide coverage for laptop computers or mobile devices like tablets and smartphones in common outdoor areas, they all link back to the main network via 5 GHz. So, whether your business needs just one ENH710EXT or a dozen to expand your network for your campus and offer connectivity to your Internet connection and other networked resources, the ENH710EXT is a great place to start.

The ENH710EXT can be configured in a number of different modes giving VARs, system integrators, IT managers, and installers the ability to configure the device for discrete functionality based on their unique network topology or scalable needs. With two onboard radios, each can be configured into different operation modes independently, thus the ENH710EXT adds an additional layer of flexibility that single-band Access Points do not offer. 

EnGenius WLANs operate at gigabit speeds and connect more client devices in the most crowded places. 
In Access Point mode, the ENH710EXT expands the overall bandwidth of an outdoor Wi-Fi solution and users who wish to stream video or transfer large files now have the option to associate to any one of the AP’s with up to eight (8) configurable 5 GHz SSIDs (Service Set Identifiers) – particularly useful in areas where there may be a preponderance of competing and overlapping 2.4 GHz signals from Access Points and devices not affiliated with the company’s network. 

For secure network configurations, the ENH710EXT includes wireless encryption standards such as Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK) Encryption and IEEE 802.1X with RADIUS. MAC Address Filtering is also included allowing network administrators to allow or deny network access to clients devices (computers, tablet PCs, NAS, smartphones, etc.) according to their MAC addresses. 

The ENH710EXT supports Fast Roaming for clients authenticated to a RADIUS server. This means that employees can be constantly connected to the network – whether they are warehouse workers scanning and capturing barcode information, employees on Wi-Fi phone calls while walking to meetings on another part of a corporate campus, healthcare professionals capturing patient information on mobile devices, or security personnel who need uninterrupted video surveillance on a mobile device when they are alerted to and making their way to the location of an incident.

Network administrators can also configure an additional layer of security by tagging each of the ENH710EXT’s SSIDs to a company’s established VLANs. This added feature helps to ensure that only users in specific VLANs are accessing information they have been authorized to access even when they work outside the building or from another building on the corporate campus that has been bridged to a main office via one or more ENH710EXT units. These settings are available upon initial installation with the device’s browser-based Graphical User Interface and through EZ Controller.

With EnGenius’ EZ Controller™ Management Software, units that have already been deployed on rooftops or other difficult to access locations and other EnGenius APs or Client Bridges in the network can be reconfigured to a different operational mode or upgraded remotely without having to manually reconnect to them or re-install them onsite. When used together with its include PoE injector, the ENH710EXT can support a tethered IP camera on the available 802.3af Gigabit port for security applications such as warehouses, stadiums, airports, corporate campuses and more.

The ENH710EXT’s external MIMO antenna array is comprised of two (2) detachable 5 dBi high gain antennas for the 2.4 GHz radio and two (2) detachable 7 dBi high-gain antennas for the 5 GHz radio. This combination of high transmit power, enhanced receive sensitivity, and four (4) high gain antennas results in long range connectivity to client devices and in some venues can minimize the number of Access Points necessary for a deployment, maximize the overall performance of devices.

The ENH710EXT is easy to install in virtually any location as well with its included PoE (Power over Ethernet) injector for quick outdoor installation. The Access Point’s internal electronics have been mounted in an IP68-rated enclosure, one of the highest waterproof and dustproof ratings available, designed to withstand extreme environmental conditions including severe and prolonged exposure to sunlight, extreme cold, frost, snow, rainfall, hail and humidity. The housing of the Access Point has also been manufactured to repel ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. These protective measures make the ENH710EXT an ideal outdoor wireless solution for virtually any locale or any venue including ski and beach resorts, sports arenas, college and corporate campuses, indoor industrial environments, and businesses located in snowy, rainy, and arid climates.
